The killers

Cars
And 
People 
Are a 
Constant

Rushing
Honking
Blinking
Whistling

Sirens screaming
Tires screeching
Horns blaring
Tempers flaring
Moments of madness
Moments of despair

Some in aimless wanderings
Or spiraling flows in roundabouts
Or flashing lights of amber, red and green 
Trying to stem the flow so other road users can 
Have - a fair go - to some it’s STOP to others GO
Some cry out in despair-and others-in concerning prayer
Life it seems is a torturous race -where stress and haste -The killers

    You have described why New Jersey and Pennsylvania are the two states in the United States with the highest auto insurance premiums. I hate to drive in either state. Is it any better in Australia? Good write.

    thank you for the warning Robert if I should ever go there I know what state to avoid lol- yes we also have madness and mayhem some states worse than others- I think Brisbane from memory and Sydney and Melbourne rate very high there too. Perth is a bit nutty-Adelaide isn't to extreme but bad enough actually come to think of it (I am on holidays elsewhere) Adelaide is getting worse. Oh dear not much left , I shall have to reside in the mountains I think away from the maddening crowds lol,Brenda
